Welcome

Dear A Better Chance Community,

It is my pleasure to introduce myself as the new President & CEO of A Better Chance. There are few things that I can say with absolute certainty as I catch up to speed. What I know, unequivocally, is that our supporters are one of our greatest strengths.

I am energized by the outpouring of support from the community during these first few weeks. The most common question I received is: How can I be of service – to A Better Chance Scholars, to Alumni, and to A Better Chance’s mission?

My early priorities during these first few weeks are listening, learning and assessing. As I engage and interact with you, these conversations are raising some important questions that will help guide plans and focus in the future. Already we are making plans to increase our communications output and provide additional opportunities to explore the mission and impact of A Better Chance.

To make these efforts as impactful as can be, I have a few asks:

  • If you are not currently connected with us on social media, please take a moment to connect with us on LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. It’s a great way to stay in the know of the latest news from A Better Chance.
  • Sign up to receive our emails by filling out the contact form in the footer of this page. This will allow us to keep you updated on our progress and aware of current events.
  • Last but not least, be our advocate. Applications for the 2022 – 2023 School Year open February 1, 2021. Make a transformative difference in a family's life by encouraging them to apply for next year's Cohort.

A Better Chance needs you. Your support is more important than ever as we work towards strengthening our organizational foundation, creating meaningful and lasting programs, and in bringing time, talent, and treasure to further our mission. I look forward to working with you to build on our important legacy and in partnership, we can help A Better Chance realize the best of our ambitions for the future.

In Service,

Francisco
